details regarding an fbi informant who was planted within al qaeda. according to numerous sources, the fbi had a mole inside al qaeda who actually met osama bin laden eight years before the september 11th attack. this mole knew bin laden planned to finance terror plots. the informant acted as a driver and confidante for the man who planned the 1993 terror attack on the world trade center. bin laden, though, apparently told the mole about a planned attack on a masonic lodge in los angeles. that information which helped the fbi prevent it from ever happening. >>> all right. so drought stricken california is finally getting a double blast of rain. but it comes with the possible flooding. heavy showers in the san francisco bay area knocked down trees and caused power outages in some areas. and wind gusts up to 45 miles per hour forced the cancellation of some airline flights. now following wednesday's rain a potentially stronger storm is on the way which could cause some severe flash flooding. but they need the rain since 2013 was california's driest year on record. residents are being warned
homemade bombs before fbi investigators took mere hours to link tamerlan to the triple homicide. the day after tamerlan was killed in a shootout with watertown police, plain clothes police obtained his friend at gun point and the case becomes more disturbing when you look at what happened to ibrahim. >> yes, his friend, shot to death in his apartment during an interview by a boston fbi agent, two massachusetts state troopers there, and it's been nine months and we still don't have an official report about what happened in that apartment by the fbi. >> at the time, again, this is a complex situation and i think people should certainly go on and read your article, but at the time, ibrahim was allegedly writing out a confession saying he and tamerlan tsarnaev had a role in this triple murder, when he was killed by fbi investigators. >> just at the moment when we finally are thinking we can get some answers in this case and that is enough -- the fbi's contention in that instance is made official, it comes up in court documents related to dzhokhar tsarnaev and we're going to be airing a one-h
elected in 2010. in the year 2012 the fbi raided his house. the following day the fbi raided offices at trenton city hall. and in the fall of that year, cement 2012, honey fitz, aka napoleon, aka the little guy waurg arrested with eight other people including the mayor's own brother and the charge was corruption. the feds posed as developers and they offered the mayor a bribe in exchange for him ok'ing the development of a downtown parking garage in trenton. there was no actual planned garage and they were not real developers twaumpl a sting. the mayor said yes to the bribe. in february this month, he was convicted of all charges. he is due to be sentence in the may. and co-get decades in federal prison based on these charges and convictions. on the day he was convicted on february 7th, the associated press provided some helpful contacts for understanding how big of a deal it is for the mayor to be going to jail on federal corruption charges. the short answer is, it is not that big a deal at all. not for new jersey. since 2000, the mayors of newark, patterson, hoboken pass aching, as
are the facts, at 9:00 this morning the attorney general went to his regular meeting at the fbi then walked back across the pennsylvania avenue to his office in the justice department for a regular 9:30 a.m. meeting with his senior staff in the big conference room adjacent to his office. an official who was in that meeting says that at one point the attorney general said i'm not feeling well, i'm going to excuse myself. you all go on with the meeting and stood up and went into his office, talked to his security detail and this official says the members of his detail persuaded him he should get to the hospital he was taken there by ambulance and admitted for some tests. the justice department said in a statement that he was resting comfortably, in fact, we're told the attorney general himself reviewed the statement before the justice department put it out. so he's obviously alert and talking to his doctor and talking to members of his staff. they say he's doing well. we're all waiting to finds out what the results of the tests indicate about what happened. >> and we actually now have breaking new
a photo of him in his room with what looked like drugs. the fbi got involved. parents and students alike were outraged and a settlement was eventually reached. i can think of a no more intimate way of spying on people than by using their web cams. it turns out the british version of the nsa known as gchq has been doing something not too different with millions of people with help from our very own nsa. the beginning of 2008, gchq conducted a wide reaching surveillance program known as arctic nerve. it saved images to data bases regardless of whether individual users were suspected of any wrongdoing. and you'll never guess what they found. basically, and i'm overstating here just slightly, people use web cams for two things. to talk to their grandkids as my parents do with my toddler, and in the words of gchq, to show intimate parts of their body to the other person. and shockingly broadcasting pornography. in fact there were such vast quantities of quote, undesirable nudity, the british agency struggled to store all of it and keep it away from the prying eyes of their staffers and they w
on this story. the fbi told us the release is now in the hands of the department of justice. so yes, we're waiting on fbi director jim comey and his reputation for doing the right thing even when it's hard. but if this is now in the hands of the justice department, we're also now waiting on attorney general eric holder. this story has not yet been the focus of a lot of national attention, but it's about to be. finally. now it's time for "the last word" with lawrence o'donnell. have a great night. >>> now even mitt romney is telling arizona governor jan brewer to veto that bill. >> pressure is mounting moment by moment on arizona governor jan brewer. >> the krien esing pressure on arizona governor jan brewer. >> to decide whether to veto a landmark state law. >> a controversial measure that would allow business owners -- >> let businesses deny service -- >> to refuse to serve gays and lesbians. >> this law, i mean, where do you begin? >> john mccain, jeff flake. >> the five republican candidates for governor -- >> apple, american airlines and marriott. >> and even three republican state
february 2014 fbi specialist durant and james oughton visited mr. stepien in his mercer county home. in his absence questioned his landlord about his conduct and character. was he married? was he a rotten tenant? did he pay his rent on time in and left behind their calling cards which prominently identified them as criminal investigators and left no doubt as to the nature of their investigation. e.j. dionne, that was all by way of saying another reason why he shouldn't comply with these subpoenas since he's under criminal investigation. >> yeah. and i think what you're seeing there is one of the difficulties that the legislative community is going to have, is there are a lot of people who just don't want to testify. and i think they're going to try to play the investigation by the u.s. attorney off against the legislative inquiry. you know, obviously they do -- everybody has a right not to incriminate themselves, but it could be a good way for witnesses who don't want to expand our knowledge on this to kind of play the thing out so that they don't have to testify anytime soon. but it is int
th, an fbi special agent called stepien's cell. shortly later, two assistant u.s. attorneys called stepien's lawyer. then in mid-february, an fbi agent along with the department of justice investigator paid a visit to stepien's home. we're also learning the u.s. attorney's office tried to contact former deputy chief of staff bridget kelly and her parents. both stepien and kelly were very close to christie, and they are the only two to publicly say they will not turn over any documents. so where is this investigation going next? joining me now, former u.s. attorney kendall coffey. kendall, thanks for your time tonight. >> hey, thanks for inviting me, reverend. >> a criminal investigation, what does that tell you, kendall? >> well, it tells you that they decided that there are indeed potential federal crimes here. they've got three highly qualified and experienced federal prosecutors assigned with probably lots of federal agents. so this is very, very serious business. and it's a fascinating development, the way they seem to be putting a maximum of pressure early on, on two of the ke
a couple other things, including in new information that the fbi had a mole inside of al qaeda who met with osama bin laden eight years prior to 9/11. sources are telling nbc news, the mole, quote, knew he planned to finance terror attacks, but the bureau declined to tell investigators or the commission about the mole. so if the u.s. had a mole who knew about the planned attacks, should that have helped stop september 11th? >> i really don't think so. we have to look at the dates that were involved here. and the fbi did have this source, this source had met bin laden once. but the source really ran. they were getting information from 1993 until 1995. and he was very regrettably killed in 1995 in bosnia by al qaeda, because they believed he was, and in fact he was, a cia source at that point. so i think what this story, which was some great reporting, i think, really shows was that in that period, '93, '95, there was still significant dysfunction between some of the u.s. intelligence organizations. the fbi and cia. but frankly, that's not a huge surprise. that's a lot of what caused 9/1
comes out, he comes out. he pays a court. fbi. and when we look at the freedom of information act, the state department, there's so many different intelligence agencies really trying to stop this guy. >> so remind us, about, and you explore this in the book, the it factor that stokely had. mike references a certain -- white folks are scared factor. there was a political it factor that he combined that other people didn't have. >> absolutely. one of the things i argue in the book is he's black power's rock star. and what i mean bhi that is not to diminish or dismiss, but a real, real appeal to stokely carmichael. you could see from the cover, this is an impossibly handsome man, hugely charismatic, and also funny. so he combined so many different aspects that people of the time don't have. and he's the original founder of the black panther party in lawrence county, alabama, starts out as a political party and he becomes honorary prime minister of that party, which has uie newton, bobby seal, so he's onto cover of magazines -- >> and the last 30 years of his life, talk about t. >> he
